1950's Ceil Chapman Watercolor Rose Floral Print Cotton Shelf-Bust Wiggle Dress

About

This is such a romantic and dramatic cocktail sundress from the iconic "Ceil Chapman" designer label. Perfect for any upcoming garden party; you can't help but feel feminine in this beauty. The garment is fashioned from a vibrant watercolor rose-garden floral cotton in shades of sapphire-blue, fuchsia and green. The bodice is an exquisite heavily sculptured, shelf-bust, slight off-shoulder design. I adore the little bow-tie accents! A nipped-waist hourglass skirt with seductive ruching finishes this garment off with a perfect "femme fatale" silhouette. Ceil Chapman is often said to be Marilyn Monroe's favorite designer and I can totally see why. This dress is flirty and elegant at the same time. Old Hollywood glamour at its best. Measurements Bust:33-34 inches Waist:24 inches Hips:35 inches Total Length:40 inches This Ceil Chapman designer dress is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working back metal-zipper. This item is over 50 years old and is truly breathtaking!
